So our golden comet has been laying for a 12 days now in the nesting box (this is the first day I have NOT seen a beautiful hard egg).
Our Rhode Island Red started showing signs, similar to our Golden comet right before she starting to lay, last night (stand off-ish, and squatting and staying squatted for a minute).
This morning I see no egg in the nesting box but I did not look into the actual coop. At lunch I went and checked again and this is what I found.
our 7 chickens are on a mix of layer/chick starter feed. With oyster shells in the corner of the coop.. however all my chicks will eat the oyster shells..
is this normal for a Rhode Island Red first egg?
Could it be our golden comet?
..all have been on the mix feed a little under 2 weeks, oyster shells been offered for that long also for our golden comet
